Coffee Rubbed Flank Steak

3/23/10

In my world, watching the Food Network show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives before bed is equivalent to eating food. Because, I will undoubtedly go to bed and dream about what I just watched on the television set, and I will wake up still thinking about it, and I will spend most of the day re-watching it in my brain. Then, I will try to make what I saw. Hence, watching Triple D = eating food. Do you follow? It's okay because I don't.

The other night on the show someone made a huge coffee rubbed beef brisket, and it looked ridiculous. A thousand spices, grilled, then braised, then sauteed in au jus. I want to go to there. So I tried, and came up with my own quicker, smaller, more affordable version...

Coffee Rubbed Flank Steak
(Serves 4-6)

2-3lb. Flank steak
1 T instant espresso
1 T chili powder
1 T brown sugar
1 T paprika
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper


Combine all spices in a bowl, stir with fork.


Place steak in roasting pan. Set oven to broil. Rub spices all over steak, on both sides.


Broil 4 minutes a side for medium rare. My cup 'o tea.


This was really good, y'all. Very flavorful, a hint of spice, a hint of sweet, juicy steak. It wasn't slow roasted brisket, but it was a good Tuesday night meal.


(Served with Chipotle Green Beans, which I will try to post soon...)

You forgot to add that it was served with a "wuss roll"

No mom, gave those to Gloria.

Lora, that is a Hawaiian Sweet Roll, only one of the most delicious rolls that exist. Tiny, yes, but wonderful.

I love to read food blogs because it lets me know there are others out there with my same strange food obsessions. It is not at all strange to dream about food, at least in my foodie heart its not :) The steak looks awesome! I'm going to try a coffee rub next time, yum!
